Whiteline Express is one of the larger trucking companies in the United States – another finish in Freightwaves’ Top 500 For-Hire Fleets proved that. On that list, Whiteline Express finished 286th with 312 tractors and over 1,200 trailers.
The company continues to grow and improve over time.
Today, I’m going to list some of the best perks of being a Whiteline Express truck driver.
1. Driver Bonuses
The turnover rate in the trucking industry is currently over 90%, meaning that over 90% of drivers leave companies after less than a single year. At Whiteline, we try to lower that number as much as physically possible by making our employees happy.
One of the ways we do that is by creating some of the best bonuses in the industry.
One of our bonuses that flies under the radar is our referral bonus. Perhaps it’s the name, which sounds too much like reefer, that deters drivers from taking advantage of this. That said, it’s too good of a bonus to ignore.
Anytime I talk to a driver, I tell them to refer drivers. If you tell somebody to drive for Whiteline and they list you in their application, you will earn $0.12 per mile for every mile they drive in their first three months. That’s an average of over $3,000 per referral and all you don’t have to do anything more than refer somebody.
If you’re considering a move to another company, try referring other drivers to Whiteline Express instead.
2. Pet & Rider Policies
When it comes to whether or not a trucking company will allow pets or riders, your chances can come down to a toss-up. In fact, fewer than half of trucking companies in the United States allow pets in their vehicles. A notable company on that list is Heartland Express.
Whiteline Express does allow pets and riders to ensure that our drivers are happy. Check out our favorite Whiteline dog, Suave.

3. Our Mileage Assurance Program
One of the biggest complaints that you see from drivers across the industry is that companies will not give them enough miles. After all, most drivers are paid per mile. No miles, no money.
Because of this, we have a Mileage Assurance Program at Whiteline Express. Our drivers will be paid for 2,500 miles as long as they hit 1,700 in any given week. This assures that they’re able to generate the income that they were looking for when they began working here.
